Set on a beautiful seven acres of wooded hillside, Homestead Hideaway offers you a unique opportunity to rest and relax within a peaceful setting. Located just 15 Miles from Galena, Illinois, our cabins in the woods can be your home away from home while you enjoy Galena, Chestnut Mountain, hiking, wineries, and all the other amenities Jo Daviess County has to offer.

When you stay at Homestead Hideaway, you can simply relax in our cozy rustic cabins, or get out and enjoy everything the area has to offer. At Homestead Hideaway you can expect a tranquil feel and a stress free retreat. The cabins are located in a beautiful rural area where it is perfect to have a cup of coffee or tea in the mornings and enjoy the wildlife. Let our cabins be a rare chance to unplug from the world and help ensure you have a relaxed and secluded stay. We are not able to provide Internet or cable TV due to the location of the cabins. However, do not let that steer you away from the beautiful setting. There are numerous locations in Galena as well as E-Town Coffee in Elizabeth, IL with Internet access.

We have two historic cottages located on the property and three separate rentals. The cabins are located on opposite ends of the property. You can enjoy the seven acres of wooded area by hiking or taking your dog for a walk. Whether you are planning a romantic trip to Galena, a golfing trip, a couple’s getaway, a wine lovers weekend, or skiing at Chestnut Mountain during the winter months, Homestead Hideaway will accommodate to your needs.

We have been renting the cabins for about 2 years now. We have decided to go beyond the brochure advertising and word of mouth and work with VRBO for our rentals. Do not hesitate to ask any questions.

This rental is for the Brimeyer cabin. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. One bedroom is located on the top level with a King bed. The second bedroom is on the bottom level with a queen bed. The main level has a kitchen and a living/dining area. There is also a sofa sleeper in the living/dining area.

The other cabin on the property also has two rentals on this website. The top two levels of the other cabin is the Seven Sisters Suite vrbo # 623038. The lower level/unit of the cabin is our Gleneagle Suite which is also listed on VRBO #624157

We now have a landline at the cabin. It is for local and emergency(911) calling only. If you wish to call long distance you will need to bring a calling card. However, long distance inbound calling is free.

Perfect Forest Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed with friends at the cabin several times already and we will return. It is a great option for this hilly part of Illinois. A couple hours from Chicago and close to Galena. A perfect place to use as a base for hunting and fishing. We also love the town of Elizabeth and Schapville. The cabin is big with a lovely back area abutting the forest. The cabin really is quite lovely.

Can't wait to come back

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at the Brinmeyer cabin. We are a senior couple with a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel and love coming here. We are on our way back to Florida for the winter but are sad that we will not be able to come back until next summer. Our favorite thing is to sit on the main floor porch and enjoy the private and quiet of the woods. For additional details read our July 2017 review.

Great place for a weekend getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here! The property was clean and well-stocked with needed linens and kitchen items. It's not too far from Galena, but still very secluded and offers a very quiet place to relax. Great deck in back and a fire pit, too. The electric lock on the door makes it super easy to come and go, with no keys to keep track of. We did notice that there was not a functioning smoke detector in the upstairs bedroom and that the downstairs tub wobbles quite a bit when you're standing for a shower. The sofa bed is also not the most comfortable (most aren't!), if you've got 6 people you need to sleep. Besides the safety items mentioned, everything was terrific and we would definitely stay again!

BRIMEYER Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Would definitely stay here again. Cabin was clean and well kept. The area was very private and quite. A couple of issues though.

1. No working fire detectors on any level of the cabin.

2. TV and DVD player present but remote did not work other than to turn on and off TV. No local TV reception.

3. Maybe could add soft water and clean up rust stains in the bathtubs. Could crank up the water pressure a bit on the well too.

None of the above concerns would keep us from visiting again. It was a very enjoyable and relaxing stay.
